You guys...November seriously went by in the blink of an eye. PLUS it doesn't help that we're still having 60 degree days here in Denver, so it doesn't even truly seem like the holidays yet. Well, even though we aren't getting those frigid temps yet, I'm sure they're on their way and I'm prepared with this ugly sweater theme for the FREE digital wallpaper for the month of December.
And just like that….it was the holiday season! October has been a blast and went by way too quickly. But I have to say that I’m really looking forward to these last few months of the year and planning to take a bit of time off to work on my own business. There are big things coming up for Six Leaf!
But in the meantime let's get to the real reason you’re here. I wanted to create something much lighter for the FREE November wallpaper design. I saw this dandelion pattern in some tiles on Instagram and got all googley eyed over it, so I knew that I had to recreate it for this month’s design. Add in a watercolor texture + some teal and I’m just in heaven over here. I don’t think I’ll get sick of this design all month, and I hope you don’t either! Be sure to grab the size you need and plaster it all over your devices this month. Please share and enjoy!
Will someone please explain to me how I can simultaneously feel like that was the longest summer of my life, and still feel like it ended too soon? September LITERALLY flew by and I am officially starting to think of how quickly the end of the year is approaching! (Gah! I’ve got to start thinking about Christmas gifts already!)
But before I start worrying about reindeer and elf on the shelf, let’s properly address the month of October with the honor that it truly deserves. I’ve created this wallpaper as a tribute to my favorite author and the king of creep (P.S. if you haven’t seen IT, then you’re missing out!). Be sure to grab this FREE digital wallpaper design for the month of October to keep yourself freaked out all month long. Please share and enjoy!
Lindsay Haag came to me last year with the idea for her new business and needed help to create a logo to match her unique approach to nutrition. The goal of Off Beet Nutrition is to provide powerful weightloss tools to people through mindfulness, nutrition counseling, workshops, cooking classes and more. With Lindsay's versatile background of nursing, nutrition and chef training (what DOESN'T this woman do?!), we knew that we needed to create a logo that would capture her audience's interest enough to make them want to learn more.
Hello party people! How has everyone's August been with summer winding down and school starting back up again? The last month has been a bit slower for me, but big things are ramping up behind the scenes and I'm planning some business changes before the end of the year.
Anyway, enough about me...I'd like to introduce you to the new FREE wallpaper design for September featuring an adorable hand-drawn triangle pattern and calming colors. Hopefully we can slide into autumn with this baby on all our digital devices to make saying goodbye to summer a little easier. Please share and enjoy!

Happy August everyone! I'm not going to lie...this summer has been a rough one for me and I feel like I just haven't been able to catch a break. Usually summer is a time when my work flow lulls a bit, but June was my highest grossing month and in July I've been working through all those packages that were booked. That plus non-stop company at our house and whatever remnants of a personal life are left have made me really need to slow it down.
Every Thursday during the summer in my hometown, the Williston Downtowners Association hosts a free concert featuring local bands, food and drinks. It’s an amazing weekly event that bring the community together and I had the honor of designing their branding materials last year. This project was a dream come true for a brand designer like me who just wants to make bright, bold and funky designs. And the fact that we could incorporate some guitars and the color teal really made my day.
Summer is in full swing and the heat is here for July! Usually I slow down a bit during the summer, but this year for some reason I've been full to the brim with new branding projects and website designs (including this newly launched brand + website for Compass Advisors that we just wrapped up!). But don't worry, I would never forget about the free wallpaper design for the month -- and I'm totally loving this one.
When people visit your website there's always an end goal. An action you want them to perform, a product you want them to buy, some sort of next step you want them to take towards hiring you. But how do you get people to do these things? A big part of getting your visitors to do you what you want is by establishing trust with them so that they are willing to invest in you. People want to invest their money in credible products and services, they want to know that they can trust you with their money. Everything that you do on your website contributes to this in some way, but here a few things you can implement right away to start building that trust with your users.
